Steve Jobs is somewhat of a sacred cow. And with every sacred cow, there’s gonna be someone making fun of it.

Poodle has something to say.Poodle PSA
The homosexual uncle of the Thompson family has recorded a PSA in which he opens up about life as a gay man in the south (“People don’t like it,” he says) and details all he’s gone through:
“Growing up as a kid, I was bullied day in and day out … broke ribs, dislocated jaw, cars vandalized…”
Despite these hardships, though, Poodle has a message of hope for others in a similar situation.
“It is okay to be who you are, he says. “Don’t let anybody changeMore >

Click through photos of The Vampire Diaries below and then read through excerpts of her interview…
On her character in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower: “It’s a really heavy topic, and I hope my character gives girls some perspective. I think more than anything, girls allow abuse to happen because they’re embarrassed it happened and that they allowed it to happen. They know it’s not right. There’s no excuseMore >
Nina Dobrev is in the middle of filming The Vampire Diaries Season 4.

Jeffrey Ross arrived for the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr yesterday dressed as Joe Paterno and accompanied by two young boys in only Penn State helmets and a towel.
To many, though, this get-up was actually NOT the most offensive act by the comedian during the event.
Still wearing his costume, Ross took to the podium and addressed a red-haired Seth Greene with a clear reference to alleged Colorado shooter James Holmes:
“Congratulations,” Ross said to Green. “This is actually a really big night for you. You haven’t gotten this much attention since you shot all those people inMore >
A London native on vacation in France and apparently overcome with Olympic mania had to be rescued after attempting to swim to the U.S.
The unnamed 34-year-old told friends on the beach at Biarritz that he was off to New York to “carry the Olympic spirit across the Atlantic.”
That’s almost 3,600 miles. He probably made it at least 1-2.
His friends thought he was joking, but knowing that he was a strong swimmer, decided to let him go, figuring he’d turn around or be rescued if needed.
The man swam beyond buoys 300 yards out to sea, past the legal limits for bathing, then continued swimmingMore >
Fred Willard is expected to get off easy in his lewd conduct case. Okay, wrong choice of words.

Hunter Parrish came oh-so-close to being cast as Peeta in The Hunger Games, so the actor knows to be careful this time around. He’s trying not to get his hopes up.
However, the Weeds star is aware fans have started a campaign to attach him to Catching Fire in the role of Finnick Odair and he’s attempt to remain humble, but…
“I think you just kind of step back, and if it happens, it happens,” Parrish tells MTV of the rumor. “I’m not going to really spend too much time thinking about it, but I’d love to… I’m a fan of the books. I think there’s fantastic actors that would probably be better.More >
